After meeting Stelle Amor, you begin to realize why she stands at a towering 6 feet tall – it takes all that to contain her enormous personality, infectious laugh, magnetic energy, and that voice…. often described as “timeless,” blending various styles of soul, blues, alternative, and pop. Born in Kansas and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, Stelle cut her teeth performing at age 18 by sneaking into Louisville’s Stevie Ray’s Blues Bar and hopping onstage to improvise blues vocals. Eventually, she moved out to Nashville to pursue her music. After initially being pushed toward country music, Stelle eventually began to cultivate a “soulternative” sound that highlighted her sultry singing voice. Today, Live For Live Music is excited to premiere Stelle Amor’s self-titled debut EP ahead of tomorrow’s official release.
Says Stelle of the project, “This is my very first EP so I wanted to show my diversity of genres and really make a strong point through the song selection. These songs were shaped around a strong message or tell a story of how I got here. ‘Let’s Just See’ talks about a trip to Memphis I took with my producer; which was very inspiring and a huge turning point for everything. ‘Black Holes’ and ‘Problem Child’ are both songs written about past experiences that have really shaped me. ‘Bring It Back’ is one of my favorite songs on the record–it’s more light hearted, a reminder to just breathe and live life to the fullest!”
Continues Amor, “We recorded in 5 different studios and even some parts in our home studio; this is an eclectic record and was pieced together over a year of sessions and lots of hard work. I was lucky to have Nashville’s finest help me put it all together.”
